I ran into this ad on my walk to Whole Foods the other day. What else can it mean?

The Cleanse: Day Five

9 Jan

Sorry about not writing yesterday. I was distracted by a birthday dinner.

First off:

I weighed in at 152.6 lbs. Not really a change from the other day. But not an increase!

But I fucked up royally at the dinner and had soup. Oh the pressure!! Social anxiety and such. Oh f it. I was STARVING! I had a small bowl of chicken soup. It was one of the best thing I’d ever eaten. God bless Ta Cocina Restaurant. But DAMN them for their seductive smells and tastes.

So I effed up and I will do all I can not to do it again. Shame on me. Let’s move on.

I was informed by a friend that my mistake with the Salt Water Cleanse was rooted in my mistake in drinking it cold rather than warm. Tomorrow I will try again with warm water, and I’ll try to chug too.

Let’s see how this thing goes.

It just occurred to me…

11 Sep

that the word “schweizer” might be a derogatory term in German. I’m sure I’ve spelled it incorrectly just now too.

What does it really mean? I’ve always thought it was German for “god damn it” or “shit!”. Basically something you’de say when you’ve screwed up.

I would use it occassionally when I’d done something stupid thinking it was funny to yell in German while pounding my fist on a desk in anger.


It was brought to my attention that the term might be racist or some other terribly offensive phrase.

At that moment I had a flash of each time I’d screamed it at myself at work, on trains, on the street and at conventions. My god…have I been offending the people around me all this time?

I froze for a second to digest the possibility then snapped out of it and typed furiously on the iPhone to investigate the word’s meaning.


Apparently I have yet to spell it properly because igoogle translator says it means Swiss. Or… maybe “Swiss” is a curse word in Germany??

Either way WTF does it mean and who have I offended?

Anyone know??
